The U.S. team entered this year’s 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup as favorites to defend their title. But I don’t think anyone was prepared for this.
They came out and dominated Thailand in a legitimately historic fashion. A beatdown rarely seen in a World Cup match. They ended up with 13 goals on the day in 90 minutes of ascendant play in a beatdown of epic proportions. They shattered the record for largest margin of victory in the Women’s World Cup; Germany set it back in 2007 when they beat Argentina 11-0.
Can’t imagine a better start for any team in the history of soccer. Alex Morgan has staked her claim for the Golden Boot in the very first match. I cannot wait to see what they have in store next.
